Clearly Time to Eat

Moon_Jelly4 More than 250 pulsing moon jellies mark the entrance to Wild Reef and can also be found in the Oceanarium. Twice a day they are fed an assortment of live and frozen food, including larval brine shrimp, small copepods and shaved frozen small krill. It takes the jellies about eight hours to digest a meal. Most of the food items have some color – and the jellies don’t – so we can see when the stomach sac is full and when it’s empty.
